I love their pizza but waiting two hours when I'm told it has already gone out twice is just plain ridiculous. The only food that good is my mother's!

Worst delivery ever!

I know NYers get their panties in a wad about their pizza, I'm from PA and do know quality pizza/bread when I eat it... LA is def lacking in that department but if your wanting a decent pizza, Vitos has never let me down! So I speak for the Weho clan this is the best in city!

There are some so-called "NY'ers" dogging this place and they are out of their minds. I was born/bred in Manhattan, lived in Queens/Brooklyn and am discriminating when it comes to pizza. Vito's (alongside Joe's Pizza) is without question

Pros: still thinking

Cons: strange after taste..

It is a shame. The food use to be o.k. The quality is slipping and is very expensive. They overcharge you sometimes so check your bill? Dine in is cramped and they have no TV's. What kind of real pizzeria has no TV's to watch the game. I was in there and the guy manager was dancing around to Britney Spears! In New York that would fetch you a beating. Do yourself a favor and go to your better options in LA. Joes, Mulberry etc.

Cons: Annoying Manager (bald guy) food is inconsistent.

Also ended up there because so many people said it is flgreat NY pizza. Unfortunately, was disappointed. The reviewers should qualify if they lived in NY at least 3years or more. This seems to appeal to non-new yorkers who don't know much about pizza. The dough looks good; but lacks substance and taste. Ingredients are not good quality. I am a transplant; been in LA over 20 years; frequently travel to NY; other than Mulberry St pizza (which is at best a B- by NY standards LA has no good pizza; still hopeful for the future though.

I got cheese slices because I wasn't going to spend $16.50 on pizza I've never tried before. The sauce was great but I don't like burnt crust. I don't like crunchy pizza especially burnt ones. I prefer soft chewy crust with more sauce and more cheese. It just isn't worth what their asking for

This is by far the best slice in LA. Great toppings, the best quality cheese, and a perfect crust. Get the plain cheese or the white pie, crazy good stuff.

Seriously, I'm in front of my computer eating Vito's pizza right now. Friggin delicious. I also got a salad on the side and the vegetables are very fresh, which isn't always the case at pizza joints. I'd recommend Vito's to anyone looking for a real pizza in LA, particularly as most East Coast transplants know how hard it is to find good pizza out here. Vito's is it.

Ooh man! this pizza is huge and the TASTE is Huge too! Very good best I have had in the WEHO area yet! only negative is it is a little pricey! You better have a friend to share it with, also the calzone's are GREAT too but ask for extra sauce! I recommend give it a try next time instead of pizza hut you will be pleased!

I ate at this joint after reading the reviews in CitySearch.
Being born & raised in New York City, I know a little something about New York Pizza. I decided to go there after my LA spot Albano's closed. This pizza could not even hold a candle to NYC pizza. I asked for extra sauce on the pizza and these knuckleheads poured it on top...I mean come on....who is making these pizzas?
The crust was dry, flavorless, no chew to it at all which is the best part of a New York slice, a nice thin chewy crust. I will never eat there again and if I'm ever in the mood for real New York pizza.....I'll just buy me a ticket and fly back home. For those of you who claim this pizza is authentic, you must have not have any taste buds or appreciate the true texture of a New York slice. Where in the hell have you been eating Sbarro? What added insult to injury is that 1 large Pepperoni & 3 cokes was 28.00. Are you friggin kidding me???

Well, after reading the reviews here, I decided to give Vito's Pizza a try. I actually wanted a Calzone but Vito's oven was too full and they couldn't make me a Calzone. I guess that would have taken some space away that Vito needed for it's $28.00 XL (18 inch) pizza. I am sorry but the pizza was very average for $28. I usually spend a lot of money on food in places such as Katana on Sunset, Vice Roy, (Now the) BLT on Sunset and many other expensive restaurants so the problem is not the $28 for a pizza but the quality of the pizza that you get for the money. "you get what you pay for" but not in this place. The pizza is average and I would probably go to the other little places to get good pizza.

One of my FAVORITE restaurants in LA, if not my ultimate favorite. Not only is the food INCREDIBLE, the people that work there are AMAZING. Vito (THE Vito from Vito's Pizza) is there most nights behind the counter w/ a huge smile. This is how food is supposed to be eaten. Cooked fresh daily. The pizza is to die for, and don't even get me started on the pasta dishes. The pesto penne and the baked ziti...>WOW!

You have to try this. Eat it. Love it.

Pros: EVERYTHING, from the food to the available parking to the people and then back to the food!

Cons: nothing i can complain about.

good pizza. pasta dishes are good also and I know they make a variety of good meal's. I am a transplant from NJ (which I hear vito is also) I I know my fair share of good pizza and italian joints and VITO can definitely hang with them if he was out east.

i love the bread also

This place does pizza right. As much as I enjoy a California style pizza with a bunch of odd toppings, I still need to have a slice that reminds me of a good, New York style pizza and I always find what I'm looking for at Vito's. An excellent crust combined with fresh toppings are cooked to absolute perfection. For first timers, I'd recommend the Terra Firma as your introductory slice. If you're a mushroom fan, the wild mushroom pizza is the one to get (whole pie only). For those that like a little kick of heat on their pizza, have a slice of the Garibaldi - beef, tomato, and jalapenos. My normal order is two slices - a sausage/mushroom and either a veggie or white pie slice (a 4 cheese pizza). Although I miss the days when Vito's was walking distance from my house in East Hollywood, he has definitely upped his pizza quality which translates to great news for pizza fans and bad news for all other pizza joints within 10 miles of Vito.

i consider myself a successful woman. i live in west hollywood in a 1 bedroom, pay my own rent, my car etc... anyways my point is the pizza was good but the price was insane. i had a lg pie, a salad and 2 cokes delivered. 38 dollars...wow. i was floored... and a delivery charge to boot. too pricey for me and i feel for the neighborhood. last i checked this isn't beverly hills...its west hollywood, single people living in apartments, not families living in multi million dollar houses... good luck. but i can't afford it 3 times a month, i'll stick with another place.

Oh thank god someone recommended Vito's. I am a recent transplant from NYC/NJ and everything I have tried in Los Angeles called pizza has been some of the worst food I've eaten in a long time. Vito's is not only passable, even if it were in NYC or NJ, this is really good pizza and well prepared italian food.

I guess I shouldn't be surprised since Vito is also a transplant from NJ. :o)

Buon appetito!

I thought I posted this last week but somehow it disappeared. I think someone must have had it deleted...but here goes again:
I just read another review about an $18 pizza...how about a $35 dollar pizza. Yes, that's right THIRTY FIVE. I called to see what sizes they had, I was told 18". I asked about what the price range was, they said it starts around $17 and goes up. My boyfriend is in that area, so i call him and we debate about toppings and settle on just veggies. I call and order it, tomatoes, onions, and mushrooms. I call my boyfriend back and he asks for their number so he call and have them add artichokes. I tell him I am very hungry..hurry home. He gets here and then I ask what it cost him so I can chip in. $35!!!!!!! He says he decided to just get the veggie pizza, which by the way folks, only has spinach, broccoli, tomatoes and feta. He added artichokes since I like them and sauce since it didn't have any already. They charge him $3.50 for the artichokes and another $2.50 for the sauce totally $35. I called Vito's back up livid. I asked how did it get this much. He gave me the price breakdown and then said that's just their prices. I said I could go to fine dinning and get that price, he said nothing. Now, I get my boyfriend should not have paid for that but he just knew I was hungry and assumed since I called up there asking about their pizzas and prices, that I already knew. I will NEVER return and I will warn my friends as well!

Pros: I know better to never go again

Cons: outrages prices and it wasn't even that good

I was skeptical when a friend told me that a new pizza place had relocated from Silverlake to West Hollywood. I stopped into vito's to try a couple different slices. The ricotta and spinach was amazing, sweet and savory all at once. I also had a slice with sausage and veggies and it was just what I needed. The crust was just the right consistency that I look for, thin, but strong enough to hold together. There isn't much seating, so you might want to plan on take out or delivery. It may seem a little pricey for a slice, but I would pay twice this much for quality this high. Don't tell Vito!

a friend told me about this place, was supposed to be the best... had a slice, was really good. the next day we order a pie, just cheese. they deliver it, who charges for local delivery??? also it was like 20 dollars for a cheese pie... craziness. he will never last, no wonder he disappeared for awhile.. my friend told me he had another place years ago and pulled the same stuff over there, overcharging, etc.... good luck..

OK.I am another NY transplant and I have found some great places......Albano's, Mulberry, Berry's and Village Pizzaria's. All good, but since Vito came to WEHO he is on the top of the list. Perfect sauce, high quality mozzarella, thin and crispy crust. Try the veggie slice with dollops of ricotta. His calzones are made fresh to order and can feed a family of 4! Service is friendly and they even remember your name! Hands down, this one is a winner!

Ciao Saluti.

Make no mistake, this is real Italian thin-crust. Family recipes, Jersey roots, from the most densly packed Italian-Amerian area in America . When he closed the Vermont shop, I was truly disillusioned. Now all we have to do is get the bagels in line.

Thanks Vito from Exit 9

Pros: Real Pizza

Cons: Not enough like him in L.A.

I have been twice, and both times I was underwhelmed. I like the attitude of everyone working there (very friendly), and the concept is a good one, but both times the pizza was only "eh" at best.
The sandwiches are excellent, however. And I like the free parking.

The generous slices at this little pizza shop hidden in a strip mall are not to be missed. The cheese pizza with dollops of fresh ricotta cheese on top was incredible as well as the green and red bell pepper with pepperoni. The wait staff was beyond nice and Vito himself made a surprise visit to our table and with an affectionate 'ciao bella' was on his way. This family-owned joint is a gem and a must try for someone looking for a perfect slice of pizza.

I had Vito's yesterday and damn was it a great slice. I had a slice of white and a margherita slice...both hella tasty...I learned that he used to be on Vermont back in the day, wish I'd known about it, then again, I'm westside snob all the way and loathe venturing east of the Grove...Go to Vito's, you're gonna love it......

I'm from New Jersey, but I've lived in Los Angeles for 13 years. I have searched for east coast pizza out here for years. There WERE some decent places, Damianos, Albanos, Mulberry-- but Vito's FINALLY is a true Tri-State area pizza joint. No other place comes as close. They got the crust, cheese and sauce exactly right.

My 13 year quest has ended. At Vito's on La Ciengea. East coasters- trust me, just go.

The crust is done right...and if you want to know the definition of done right go to Vito's, watch him make a pie, then check it out when it gets to your table...it'll be slightly charred, slightly sweet, crispy on the outside, chewy on the inside, and when you hold it and fold it like a NYer it'll carry its own weight...my favorites are the vegetable slice, and the margherita. Add an icy coke and you got the winning combination...

My friend and co-worker took me to Vito's a few months ago for lunch and I am truly in LOVE. There isn't a better pizza in LA, forget Grecco's or any other pizza in town - this is it. The dough is soft yet crispy on the bottom, the sauce not to sweet, and the cheese...oh the cheese.

So far I've had the white pie, terra ferma, veggie, and meatball; all are wonderful and full of flavor. This has also become a treat for the kids, and my very picky foodie 13 year old has sung praises for the white pie.

The dining area is always clean, and well kept; and the atmosphere is always friendly. Unlike other places where you turn into an order number - regular visits to Vito's pays off because the staff actually remember you and treat you like family.

Hopefully this location gets the great press it deserves, as I am now a loyal convert and make this my weekly treat for lunch!

First of all, after living in New York for most of my adult life, I moved to LA about two years ago. Yes, I was one of those east coasters: I searched up and down Los Angeles for "the perfect slice." I was prepared to make a few concessions (my least favorite of which was the lack of by-the-slice joints out here). About four months ago, I gave up. Dominos was about as good as it gets--not pizza, but at least it was consistent. And then I learned about Vito's.

Oh. My. God. No, seriously folks--this is the real deal. They can get away with charging a whopping $16.50 for an 18" cheese pie for a reason. It is amazing--the sauce-to-cheese ratio, the REAL ingredients (including the ACTUAL parmasean cheese that comes packaged with your pizza along with pepper flakes), the super-friendly staff, Vito himself. Seeing as this place is a block from my house, soon I will probably need to be rolled home. It is phenomenal, and I (obviously) HIGHLY recommend. A+++ on service, quality, and above all, the superior pizza pies & slices. Try the white pie! It is DIVINE.

Oh. My. God. No, seriously folks--this is the real deal. They can get away with charging a whopping $16.50 for an 18" cheese pie for a reason. It is amazing--the sauce-to-cheese ratio, the REAL ingredients (including the ACTUAL parmasean cheese that comes packaged with your pizza along with pepper flakes), the super-friendly staff, Vito himself. Seeing as this place is a block from my house, soon I will probably need to be rolled home. It is phenomenal, and I (obviously) HIGHLY recommend. A+++ on service, quality, and above all, the superior pizza pies & slices. Try the white pie! It is DIVINE.

Pros: No really--finally, real pizza in LA!!!

Cons: NONE

.

For all those Angeleno transplants who whine and moan about how they cannot find a 'good slice anywhere' in Los Angeles, check this place out. Vito makes the best white pie I have ever had, and the staff is old-school personable and a laugh-riot.

Pros: Everything

Cons: Cannot think of any

Vito has a certain perspicacity regarding dough-making that I haven't seen matched in an L.A. pizzeria. His sauce is tightly tuned, and he uses only the highest quality cheeses which make his pies the hands-down best in this town. While many others continue their spurious claims to the title, Vito is the only one who consistently pounds out the best. (Calling yourself a pie man and then dusting some oregano and garlic powder into a vat of canned sauce you get in bulk from Sysco, and using utilitarian-grade cheese, and then baking the pie on cornmeal is tantamount to saying you make great deli sandwiches and then taking out store-bought bread and layering it with sad packaged lunch meats...and then having the temerity to call yourself a sandwich maker). And these guys exist, but not inside VIto's. The calzones get extremely high marks and while all the slices I've enjoyed left me sated, it was the Veggie slice that actually permeated my dream one night.

I extend and wink and a nod to you Vito...you've stealthily become the Pizza King of the online foodie community here in L.A. and I command any reader who's eyes happen to scan these pizza-prose to go over there. Buy some, try some, fee fi fo fum.........Lastly, for you out-of-towners seeking a thrill, I've seen more celebs munchin' pie in Vito's in six weeks than I've seen at any other pizzeria in Hollywood in 7 years...and I get around.
